Applications of the Calculus to Mechanics
by E.R. Hedrick, O.D. Kellogg - Ginn and company
It has been the practice at the University of Missouri to follow the course in sophomore calculus with several weeks in applications to mechanics, a subject rich in the kind of material desired. This book is a formulation of the work there attempted.
